A Celebration of Dreams

An artistic installation celebrating Martin Luther King’s “I have a dream” sentiments now resides in the stairwell of the Joseph R. Curry Academic Center. On each slip of paper is a dream jotted down by a Cushing student – dreams that range from world peace to college acceptances, the end of bullying and making one’s parents proud. “The idea driving the project was MLK and his dreams,” said faculty member Jessica Devin, who oversees Cushing’s diversity group, Open Doors. “By having people think about and share their dreams we hoped – among other things – to keep his dream alive, to show visually that we collectively have meaningful dreams, and to add a little color to the otherwise bleak winter.”
